Phys­ios start new joint

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By DENISE S CAHILL

COTTES­LOE phys­io­ther­a­pists Greg Di­a­mond and An­thony McEvoy used to run prac­tices on the same street.

Now they share con­sult­ing rooms af­ter merg­ing their busi­nesses – Cottes­loe Phys­io­ther­apy and LifeCare Cottes­loe – and mov­ing to Cottes­loe Cen­tral to be­come LifeCare Cottes­loe Phys­io­ther­apy.

Mr Di­a­mond closed the doors of Cottes­loe Phys­io­ther­apy, which his fa­ther Peter Di­a­mond started in 1962, af­ter 26 years in the busi­ness.

“It gives me free­dom from the day-to-day run­ning of the prac­tice so I can have more of a clin­i­cal fo­cus, par­tic­u­larly us­ing the Ridge­way Method, which is quite unique,” he said.

“You get to a stage when to have the dy­namism you need to in­vite new and younger phys­ios in and learn from them and con­trib­ute to them.”

Mr McEvoy started with LifeCare Wem­b­ley in 2004 and moved with the busi­ness to Cottes­loe in 2007 where he be­came prac­tice man­ager.

The Ned­lands res­i­dent said the com­bi­na­tion of ex­pe­ri­ence and knowl­edge in phys­io­ther­apy and prac­tice man­age­ment be­tween the two of them would en­sure they could of­fer a broad range of ser­vices. The new prac­tice has nine phys­io­ther­a­pists.
